Incorporate soil carbon credits into your climate contribution strategy.

Carbon Sequestration through Regenerative Agriculture

Long-term improved agricultural land management practices reverse the historical trend of land degradation and greenhouse gas emissions associated with agriculture. These practices contribute to the enhancement of soil health and its interdependent ecosystem services. Among these benefits is climate change mitigation through carbon sequestration.

We have a proactive approach in supporting farmers and meticulously measuring the impact of their practices. Our team of established agronomists conducts on-site visits, overseeing the soil sampling process and delivering consistent feedback to optimise both CO2e removal and soil quality.

Local Partnerships

Securing success through cooperation with farmers and local stakeholders.

Governance and Engagement

Conjoint design and implementation of science-driven regenerative practices.

Robust Methodology

First-class carbon accounting methodologies ensuring reported emissions reductions are accurate.

Permanence of Practices

Implementation of mechanisms to ensure that long-term carbon sequestration.

The Power of Healthy Soil

Nature-based tool in the improvement of our ecosystems

Soil is the second largest carbon sink at our disposal when addressing the effects of climate change.

Furthermore, soil is at the core of our ecosystem which is why HeavyFinance produces unique, verified agricultural carbon credits.

Implemented and adopted long-term improved agricultural land management improves and protects soil health and its interdependent ecosystem services, like carbon sequestration, nutrient cycling, disease and natural pest control, erosion control, among others.

Empowering European Farmers and Supporting Local Communities

Stakeholder Engagement

Our dedicated team of agronomists incorporate farmers concerns, limitations and goals into a conjoint design and implementation of practices, ensuring long-term engagement and project permanence.

Empowerment through Knowledge

Our team offers continuous on-farm technical, science-driven support. Delivering insightful reports and metrics from soil sampling to deepen understanding and address the needs of the soil.

Beyond Carbon Sequestration

Regenerative practices go beyond carbon sequestration, achieving crop resilience, higher nutrient density, decrease in nutrient leaching, and positive impact on human and animal health.

Attending the Finance Gap

HeavyFinance engages values-based investors in the funding of implemented practices scaling up climate action and puts in place revenue sharing mechanisms to compensate local stakeholders to ensure project feasibility.

The Carbon Farming Program of Lithuania

Collaborative initiative between HeavyFinance and Lithuanian farmers

The program leverages private capital to implement and adopt improved long-term agricultural land management practices, which focus on storing and increasing organic carbon, reducing anthropogenic gases, enhancing soil health, and promoting nutrient cycling, among other ecosystem services.

Here are some frequently asked questions

The quality of a carbon credit is determined by several factors. At HeavyFinance we focus on achieving the higher levels of quality in the following pillars of our project development:

  1. Additionality: when enrolling into our program, every farmer is supported so that at least three regenerative practices are implemented in his farm. These practices must be implemented as a consequence of the enrollment into the program, and not the other way around.
  2. Robust and conservative methodology: we utilize first-class carbon accounting methodologies with third-party validation and verification coupled with robust tech-enabled and other monitoring mechanism to conservatively and accurately estimate the amount of carbon sequestered.
  3. Permanent: we put in place strong governance and engagement mechanisms and a consented design and implementation of practices process that enable us to ensure farmers and local stakeholders engagement, minimizing the risk of reversals and ensuring that carbon remains sequestered long-term.
  4. Beyond carbon and SDGs. With soil health acting as a cornerstone, we aim for long-lasting value in interdependent ecosystem services like water purification, erosion control, nutrient cycling, disease and natural pest control, among others. We also align our project development with the fulfillment of different sustainable development goals like no hunger, good health and well-being, climate action, life on land and water and others.

The voluntary carbon market involves several key participants, including project developers, end buyers, retail traders, brokers, and standards organizations. Project developers initiate carbon reduction or removal projects, ranging from large-scale industrial to small community initiatives, and issue carbon certificates. End buyers, typically companies, purchase these certificates to offset their greenhouse gas emissions. Retail traders act as intermediaries, buying carbon certificates in bulk from developers and selling them to end buyers, often earning commissions. Brokers facilitate the trade between retail traders and end buyers, also earning commissions. Standards organisations certify that projects meet specific objectives and requirements, ensuring the legitimacy of carbon certificates. This market structure enables the creation and sale of carbon credits, allowing end buyers to offset their emissions.
